This knife had a broken tip and I reground it to a 4" drop point hunter.

For me, the buck 110 and 119 have been excellent tools.

It's not a great photo, but I bought both of these knives at the Airborne PX, Ft. Benning, GA on the day I graduated Airborne School. That was late December of 1990. Over 31 years ago and I still have them. They are my favorite knives, regardless of manufacturer.

One I lost many many years ago.

Pretty sure it was from leaving it on the truck bumper when we was gettin' drunk the night before a bass fishin' tournament.

I carried and wore out several Buck gents over many years.

Not a bad knife, but overpriced. I am happy these days with a similar Gerber, but with a liner lock. I have never worn out one of the Gerbers. But at ten bucks each in the bubble pack, I keep three or four in the cabinet for when I misplace one.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

I have three Buck 110's. The oldest one is the year they first came out. Two of them have skinned so many Deer, Elk and pigs that the blades looked like stiletos I send them to Buck and for 20 bucks they just came back with new replaced blades, At 85 I probably won't be around long enough to do this again but my Grandkids who hunt might have to as I'm leaving them to them

The new generation of Buck knives will have an impact on new knife buyers.

What's not to like.

I have several from a $10 on sale special direct from Buck, to a unused, unsharpened 1970's Kalinga in it's case, and a as new 1970 110 with sheath, and like them all.
I have carried a Buck stockman in my front pocket for several decades
As for a favorite maybe a 110 I got for Christmas from my parents over 40 years ago that has gutted well over 50 big game animals.

Love the regrind, did you reshape the handle a bit as well?

I've got a 120 that needs that done & will copy your shape if I do. A good friend gave it to me to do with what I want. He carried it for 2 or 3 tours in VN & I can't bring myself to change it.

Long story short, it's my favorite Buck even though it's missing nearly an inch of the tip.

Yep. That’s just about perfect right there.

I’d buy one if Buck would make one just like it.

Thanks brother skeen.

I've reground several over the years and have given them to hunting buddies.

I have one more that I kept.I reground this one to 5" drop point.

[Linked Image]That’s really nice. I’d say it’s a perfect balance in fact. You did some good work on that one. The other Buck that you worked on looks really good too. Strong work.


Every day on this side of the ground is a win.
